Oh the delicious irony…

Last night, Touchdown Jesus was struck down by lightning. You remember Touchdown Jesus, don’t you? Yeah. Toast. But never fear, they promise to rebuild him. Bigger, Stronger, Faster. I mean, if I believed in a god, and he just struck down a tacky idol. I would totally start rebuilding it the next day.

eta: and the markets rally over 2% on the news… Clearly it’s a sign.

  2. as hilarious as that is, i must protest. touchdown jesus is at notre dame university, behind the end zone and visible from the field. that’s quicksand jesus.

  3. When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a Jesus on a swamp, but I built him all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that’s what you’re going to get, Lad, the biggest baddest Jesus in all the land!

  4. You know, it’s surprising there aren’t as many comments on the news site running the story lamenting the tragedy of it all as I thought there would be. Course there are plenty saying it’s a sign from god, false idols and all that jazz. I was looking at the photos there and noticed the clumps of burnt foam and debris. Somehow I was strangely reminded of the end of Ghostbusters where they end up breaking Sigourney Weaver out of the burnt up demon statue.

  5. I see they expanded the article. A choice quote.

    “Church officials said they didn’t know exactly what prompted the nickname commonly used by people in the area. “

  6. heh heh heh!
    And yet right at the beginning they say “touchdown jesus because of the way the arms are raised…”

  7. heh heh FIRE FIRE FIRE!!!!!!

    Heh, you sed BBQ. 🙂

    (and you’re right Quicksand Jesus is funnier too, I mean, he’s Jesus and he didn’t see it coming? Course I guess the same could be said for him seeing a “Touchdown!” too. It would be for a boring game though, neither team would have to actually do anything just call out the plays and Jesus would raise his arms if the play was going to be successful.

  8. Let me tell you nutballs what happened: I was rooting for Boston, Dad for the Lakers. By the time Game 6 rolled around, the old man was losing his marbles. In a particularly pensive moment during the third quarter of Game 6, LA did one of their patented filthy moves on the court, Dad got all worked up and excited, he jumped off his La-Z-Boy to do a “woo hoo!” type of cheer and then HE did one of HIS patented, filthy moves all over “Touchdown Me.” That lightning struck as a result of some dumb play by Kobe Bryant. Blame him. He will pay…eventually.

  9. i hope kobe pays with the terrible burden of dealing with all the media from a threepeat next year. we each have our cross
